This year I was formally introduced to the DVD when I traveled out to the headquarters of North Light Books in Blue Ash, Ohio in March. I spent a week there, with an amazing team of people, filming two workshop DVDs that have just been released. Of course I could not resist pulling out my camera at every free moment to document the experience. I thought you might like to have a glimpse into what goes on behind the scenes...
Walking onto the set for the first time. Yikes...so many cameras. Where do I look? That is Kristy Conlin in the background, an editor at North Light and my producer for the shoot.
I call this the dashboard, where the video director Ric Deliantoni ran the show.
There were three cameras filming the action at all times. Hmmmm...wonder what is my best angle?
Who knew I would have my own clapper? I was tempted to 'borrow' this as a souvenir but something told me I best leave it behind for the next DVD shoot.
My view from the worktable. Thanks for the smile face guys!
After it was done, they ran the tape as part of the filming production process. I glimpsed with one eye closed to see how I had done.
The crew at North Light. They were beyond wonderful...100% professional and 200% fun.
From start to finish, this has been a memorable experience. And now I have given birth to two, 2.8 ounce DVDs (slipcase and all).
